Hana was adopted from South Korea, but raised in Seattle. Hana recently worked for Social Venture Partners Seattle as their Program Manager of Community Investment. She managed their multi-year grantmaking program by facilitating the committees that select new Investees each year. Before her time at SVP Seattle, she completed an intensive 2-year fellowship program with Rainier Valley Corps (RVC) where she built capacity within Voices of Tomorrow, a nonprofit focused on East African Early Learning issues. Prior to her fellowship, Hana worked at the Washington State Association of Head Start and ECEAP advocating on for early learning issues on a State and Federal level.
When she’s not creating systems and building relationships, Hana loves to travel and explore new cities, scenic hikes in the PNW with her puppy, and build Star Wars Lego sets.
